A report prepared by the forensic science laboratory has confirmed that “experts” had written the examination for Bihar Intermediate Arts “topper” Ruby Rai, who had pronounced political science as “prodigal science” and said that the subject deals with cooking.

The report showed that her handwriting did not match five of the six papers she purportedly appeared in. Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has cancelled the Class XII result of Rai and of three toppers from other disciplines.

Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj told The Indian Express: “As we had found a lot of discrepancies in handwriting in the answer sheets of the arts topper, we had sent all her six papers for forensic test. The report showed that the arts topper wrote only the home science paper.” The SSP added that the Vishun Rai College of Vaishali had allegedly given freedom to some of its students to write papers leisurely on the college campus late in the evening after the day’s exam got over.

Bachcha Rai, principal of VR College and one of the main accused in the toppers scam, is in jail. So are the scam kingpins, former state board chief Lalkeshwar Prasad Singh and his wife, former MLA Usha Sinha. While the arts topper is out on bail, the three other toppers are absconding.

The Special Investigation Team of the Patna police has filed a chargesheet against 30 people, including 20 public servants.

“The forensic report also showed there was no watermark in five subjects, which proves that the answer sheets were fake and not from the lot distributed in the examination hall. The original answer sheet must have a watermark. Our investigation has shown how answer sheets were changed after the examinations,” said SSP Manu Maharaj, who heads the SIT.

      A full grown adult with 56 inch chest faked his BA and MA degrees and set a fine example for all young Indians. Ruby Rai only follows the leader and is vilified for that. What has the world come to. Fakers are not respected anymore. What a pity.

        Long before Biharis discovered Prodigal Science, a famous Gujarati butcher with 56 inch chest had created a Guinness world record by discovering ENTIRE POLITICAL SCIENCE.
